  1. I wonder what kind of treatment Jared Loughtner (or however it’s spelled) is getting in the Arizona prison system while he awaits his day(s) in court . I can’t be sure of this, but I’m willing to bet he is being treated with kid gloves in comparison to Bradley Manning. He’s probably getting plenty of TV, excersize, a bed with blankets and a pillow, and sunlight even though we KNOW he killed 6 people, put a bullet in Sen. Giffords brain, and injured 20 others- lots of eyewitness saw him do this, and at least two people wrestled him to the ground with the gun still in his hand while he was in the process of reloading it. Yet Manning has been mentally tortured and psychologically broken down for months on end based on suspicions of leaking information and collaborating with Assange and Wikileaks. If my perception is even remotely correct, and I’m willing to bet it is, I think this paints a pretty clear picture how immoral and draconian this country has overtly become.

  2. the appropriate response to this and the attacks on assange is to take hostages of relevant govt officials and hold them until manning/assange are released. the US govt is and has always been a nazi govt of endless atrocities… just ask an ‘indian’ if you can find one… tell the govt terrorists that ‘we don’t negotiate with terrorists.’
